Yo. Here's a beginner's question for you: I'm putting the final touches on full-band Runaway Train (YES, ALREADY! You can thank Ryan for his speedy drum charting!) and I'm curious about doing drum fills correctly.
So, the RBN Documents say to place "1 measure" of a drum fill "every 4 bars." But there are 5 "DRUM FILL" tubes in Reaper and it says to "use all 5."
Does this mean I use each drum fill tube one time only?
If yes, do I have to use them in order?
Does this mean there are only 5 drum fills (and therefore drum overdrive deployment opportunities) per song? I don't drum... but I recall seeing drum fills pop up over and over again if a friend chose not to deploy overdrive.
If yes (or regardless, actually), at what spacing should I place the drum fills? I assume after a unison phrase is best?
I checked the PDF tutorial, but it simply sent me back to the RBN documents, lolz. Help appreciated.
Eh, and while I'm here...
The documents say to place overdrive and then go back and make half of those overdrives unisons. Is this right? So if I place 12 overdrive opportunities per instrument, 6 of them should be unisons?
